I have always remembered that everyone and my family have been telling me that the point is to "be normal" in life. Study, get a good job, then a good husband, then a good life. What a good life is supposed to mean is still something I am working on though.
To be honest, nobody ever asked me whether I agree with this theory or not. On the other hand, I never really asked under which criteria this "good life" is grounded. Is it good because you are happy? Is it good because you are a good member of society whatever this means? Or is it good because it sets up a framework within which you feel safe?
How important is the latter? I can't stop but wondering...
If society blessed the "good" minds what does society do for those whose mind has no limit? For those who cannot see a wall at the end of the path; Those who only see sea and sky along their way and all they want is to dive in without any limitations.
Did anyone do or think anything about the "mentally hungry", the unstoppable walkers of the world, the blamed, the free?
How do we react when we meet these people? Sometimes it's enough to call them nuts or just reckless. Some other times we refrain from them thinking they are of too loose morals or maybe a bad influence. Some other times we are jealous of them, trying to make them feel sorry for themselves and for their incapability to be one with the conventional, hedonistic and materialistic world we have built for ourselves.
Who are they really? Most importantly, why don't they show up?
